Lizzie Anne Designs Sneak Peek Day 2
I colored her with markers and then colored the pink part of her outfit & the brads with Pink Poinsettia Shimmerz Paint.
cardstock: yellow-Core'dinations, patterned pink-Sassafras Lass, solid pink-Crate Paper, white
ink: Memento black,pink, copics
other: rick rack, brads and ribbon
Card measures 4.5" square
Isn't this retro pear cute?! I know I'm going to be using this alot as well as the other fruit in the set.
To make the pear I inked it first in Yellow Citrus, then inked Tangerine around the edge then Warm Red to the outermost edge. I then inked the stem Chestnut Roan. By using pigment ink you have more time to add all these colors before stamping onto your paper. The fun part is that no two pears will ever look the same (just like real ones Ü).
stamps: Tutti Fruity
paper: white, all other Pink Paislee
ink: ColorBox Chalk inks in the colors listed above
other: photo corner punch
Don't forget to blog hop and see who else is playing today as well as a peek at the other sets that are being shown. PLUS a chance to win stamps here.

If I would have had a chocolate Easter bunny, I would have put it in the tube, but there isn’t any Easter candy out yet, so used this cocoa package instead.

You can find the products I used in the EI store here:
paper: Pink Paislee & Basic Grey
My Wish List To fit the "New Beginnings" theme for this project, I made a wish list notebook to fill in for all the new products that will be coming out in 2009. You can mark the tabs with companies, or supplies (ie: stamps, paper, embellishments).
Wasn't sure which way I wanted to go with this so left them blank for now. The word on the washer is "dream"; which I thought was fitting. PLUS, I've had these washers for years, so another "new beginning" is to seriously use up stuff I already have. You can buy the following products that I used here:
paper: Pink Paislee ribbon: here & here
Think Cocoa I could NOT think of a way to use the "New Beginning" theme for this project, so I am stretching it a bit. This project is a "new beginning" for me as I used for the first time "new" stamps, "new" Pink Paislee paper and for the first time used these fun clear boxes that can be found in the store. This is very easy to make and was inspired by a cocoa box I had seen on Lana Lepinski's blog. Two hot chocolate pkts (Cocoa Amore by Coffee Masters) fit in here perfectly. I just wrapped paper around the box and added ribbon. Monkey is colored with Gamsol and colored pencil technique and edges are sponged with coffee colored ink.I added glitter to the end of the stocking hat and liquid applique to the top of the mitten, boots and stocking hat.
Go here to find a supply list.
You are Sweet I love this Sweet Cakes line of Pink Paislee's! I know I am going to need more of this polka dot and popsicle paper for sure! To fit the "New Beginnings" theme, I cut this popsicle image from the Doodle Charms Cricut cartridge for the first time. I've been going to make one of these cards ever since I saw this image, but just never got around to it. Now I will *have* to make more with this darling popsicle paper! All of the paper is Pink Paislee except the solid aqua and it is from Basic Grey's Two Scoops.
You can find the supply list for this fun card here.

Pretty Patterned Paper challenge
I had originally planned for this to be more fall colors, but then found this pretty paper by My Mind's Eye in my stash and decided to use it. The buttons and flower are inspired by the colors in the paper. Then when I found out that SU!'s Groovy Guava and Blush Blossom matched the paper perfectly, I went with it!
So easy to make. I just stamped the flower and sponged! The center of the flower is stamped and sponged again and raised with a pop dot.This card was inspired by one I saw in a CTMH catalog. I used the same layout and flower idea (my flower is from Lizzie Anne Designs) and loved the use of buttons.
Recipe:Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye
Stamps: Lizzie Anne Designs Sunflower
Ink: Memento black, SU!'s Chocolate Chip, Groovy Guava and Blush Blossom
Accessories: ribbon, buttons, ribbon, sewing machine, embroidery floss, pop dot
